Why do I get so ill and tired.

Happy New Year to all.

So I used to be able to go on bery little sleep and function perfectly. So at around the age of 32 or so, not going to bed early started making me sick. Yesterday I stayed late- 1 am, with the New Years Eve and all. This morning I feel like I am dying. My stomach is a mess and it hurts. I went to bAthroom 2 times. My head... hurts bad. My anxiety is bad too. I am ill and a mess. I used to dream of going places and doing things.... I realize it is not possible. My body won't allow mesad Why am I this way? Is it fixable?smile

    Hi notsure! I feel the exact same way this morning. I too stayed up late...3 a.m. due to non stop fireworks popping on my block. I think as we get older, we're not able to do the things we used to when we were younger. Also, years of running on very little sleep can catch up to you. The "change" isn't fun at all. I wish it were a little easier. Hang in there. Happy new year and God bless!

    Wow. It is just crazy how we have such similar experiences. Not nice at all. Iam sorry there is other people feeling like that. It is one of those thing you don't wish on anyone. I so hope it is temporary for all of us.

    Hugs to all of u. We need to take our time and take care.

    Hi your not on your own I can't stay up anymore if I have one late night it takes me days to get over it. I to stayed up until midnight last night and today I feel ill bad stomach pains indigestion and I'm tired. I've been going to bed early for years but since I started the menopause I'm just tired all the time I just can't get enough rest. At 8 o'clock I'm ready for bed it's ridiculous!!!

      I'm the same way.. If I stay up past 10, I'm a mess the next day.  I defiantly need sleep and I certainly don't have the energy like I once did.   Getting ready for Christmas took so much out of me that I did lay around for days after.

      I know, right. Even my family is mocking me about getting sleepy around 8pm. They said I am acting like an old personsad I laughed but was a bit sad without showing it. It is not like I want to be that way. I get very nervous when I have to travel or pretend in front of family that I am young and energetic by staying up late or go on adventure, and I stay away from friends so they don't know. I wish my body was stronger.

      I wouldn't take any notice of what others think or say it's your body's way of saying it needs rest. Your just putting yourself under unnecessary pressure and adding to it, just try and relax. You could go to your doctor and ask him to do some tests maybe your anaemic?  I've been going to bed @ 9pm every night for maybe over 10 years. I have absolutely no desire to stay up later or go out to parties etc if we go out for a meal we go early and are home for around 8.30 - 9pm just in time for bed!!! Speak yo your doctor x
